Each coin in the Norse Gods Silver Proof series has a limited mintage and an ultra-high-relief finish. In order to produce proofs of this quality, the mint must struck the blanks multiple times under intense pressure. The result is a 3D design set that appears to tower above the background field of the coin.
The Norse Gods Silver Proof Series launched in 2015 with the release of a Thor coin, followed by Odin, Tyr, and Hel. As the series entered 2016, some of the lesser-known gods and goddesses of Norse mythology were featured on the coin. To conclude the series, Thors wife Sif is featured on the coins reverse face.
On the reverse of the 2016 2 oz Cook Islands Silver Norse Gods Sif Proof Coin youll find the image of Sif, who is the wife of Thor and was known for her stunning beauty, and long, golden hair.
The reverse face of the coin bears the right-profile portrait of Queen Elizabeth II which was created in 1998 by Ian Rank-Broadley. This face of the coin features engravings identifying the nation of issue, year of issue, face value, and Her Majestys name.
